Experienced NYC Personal Injury Attorneys Help Workplace Accident Victims Get Compensated

If you have been injured on the job in New York City, it is likely that the experience has left you battling many anxieties. You may be asking yourself questions like, when can I get back to work? How will I pay my medical bills? What if my injuries left me unable to perform at my previous job? How will I support my family? At Proner & Proner in NYC, we understand just how stressful a work-related injury can be, especially when considering the length of time that it may take for you to make a full recovery from your injuries.

Although the law says that it doesn’t matter how your injury occurred, some employers and their insurers will contest employees’ claims after an on-the-job injury. That is why it is important to get advice and assistance from a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer. At the NYC law firm of Proner & Proner, Attorney Mitchell Proner will not only advise you about your rights but will also help you complete the paperwork. His goal is to ensure that you receive all the benefits for which you are entitled. To schedule a free consultation to learn about your options, please call or contact us online.

Information About Third Party Work Injury Lawsuits in NY

There are limits on how much workers’ compensation will pay. Under certain circumstances, injured workers may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party in order to make up the difference between the amount they receive from workers’ comp and the growing amount of medical bills and other costs. Circumstances that might lead to a third party personal injury claim include:

  • Being injured in a motor vehicle crash while driving for your employer. For example, if your job requires you to deliver packages or purchased goods from a store and a drunk driver hits you while you are making a delivery, you may be able to file this type of lawsuit.
  • Being injured by dangerous conditions in a building where your employer has assigned you to work. For example, a carpenter, electrician or other contractors could be injured because of dangerous conditions in a building where work is being performed.
  • Being injured by defective equipment used on the job. For example, if earth moving machinery has poorly designed or installed brakes that allow it to move forward and cause injury, the injured workers could be eligible to file a third-party claim against the manufacturer of the equipment or components.
  • Being injured while working for a subcontractor on a building site. You may be eligible to file a claim against the general contractor or the property owner.

If you’re working construction, and suffer an injury because of a fall from a ladder, or improper scaffolding, or if you are exposed to any gravity-related risk, you may be entitled to bring an action against the owner of the building where the accident took place under the labor law. If you fell at a worksite from a ladder and sustained injuries you should contact an experienced labor law attorney. If you fell during construction because you scaffolding collapsed, you need an expert labor law attorney to determine the full amount of your rights.

If you are injured in circumstances like these, you could receive both workers’ compensation benefits and the payouts from a personal injury lawsuit. Attorney Mitchell Proner can advise you about your eligibility for the circumstances surrounding your case. In all situations like these, attorney Proner will explore your case thoroughly to identify all possible sources of compensation.
